The food was OK. A bit overpriced but I was invited by my boss so can't complain. However, the staff didn't speak a word of English and had that awful French attitude. Very rude. I was so ashamed to have taken my non French colleagues there. Never again.

The atmosphere is beautiful, well-presented and friendly. The staff are all extremely polite and pleasant. A few of them speak good English and have a very laid-back yet professional approach to things. The menu is straight to the point, small and convenient. The meals are well chosen and the menu changes every week. The steak is always cooked to perfection,... More

No issues. Excellent food quality, professional service, comfortable surroundings. Seafood focus as one would expect in coastal Brest.

My friend and I had there two dinners. Both we liked, though there wasnt something special. Sometimes you get your dishes cold (asian noodles for instance). Sometimes the service is slow. So, in general, our experience wasnt bad ))

When this restaurant was recommended the presentation was mentioned as excellent so I was expecting a flashy presentation of a few dribs and dabs of food. Actually the presentation was excellent, the portions very good and the food was tops. I had a fish kabok that was excellent. I recommend this place.

It was in my second visit to Brest for business when I decided to try this restaurant on my own. Roomy, well illuminated, attention to detail, right portions, delicious food, impeccable dish presentation, brilliant service and diligent staff. In one word: faultless. Ideal for business, not very big groups though, and to indulge your sense at a fair price.

A party of 5 had dinner at this restaurant attached to the Brest Oceania hotel. We were welcomed by a very friendly and helpful Maitre 'di. My appetiser was fois gras and it was extremely good especially with a glass of Sauternes. As a main dish I had a tasty steak with fries and mixed salad. I was surprised that... More

We visited Le Nautilus for lunch early this summer whilst attending the equally fabulous Tall Ships event in Brest. The food was the best we had in a restaurant during our week-long stay.
